    907 I think and you can get them from any caravan spares shop or if you are on a campsite they usually have them, just take the empty one with you and they will give you a new replacement, cost around £12 ish.

      907s are about £20 wherever you change.

      Much better to change to the smallest Calor, either butane (blue) or propane (red). They cost about £12 to refill, some places charge a deposit but others don't. Bottles often come up on Freecycle or if your local tip is fairly liberal they will give you one. If you intend to winter camp go to propane. Camping gas 907s contain 2.7kg of propane. Calor gas butane 4.5KG of gas and propane 3.9kg of gas

            I would just mention that with my 2005 Hylo the opening to the gas locker is too small to take the smallest Calor so I'm stuck with Camping Gaz - I use the 907 size which I think only comes with butane. Got an empty cylinder for £10 on ebay to exchange for a refill that cost about £20. Without a cylinder to exchange it would have cost about £50!!

            It has always puzzled me why Romahome designed the entrance to the locker a few inches too small to take Calor - I've measured the inside of the locker and that seems larger enough for the smallest Calor but can't get the cylinder through the entrance. I believe later vans may not have this probelm and therefore have a greater choice of the type of gas cylinder.
            Cheers, Terry.

              I find that strange because we can get a small calor cylinder in the locker on our Outlook and I didnt think that they had changed the locker size. Perhaps Ant can comment on this.

                I think they made the locker bigger when they changed to the new type gas regulator.

                  Hi Dave,

                  You can normally get the 907 gas from Parkers, the hardware shop in Stubbington village which wouldn,t be too far away for you to go. I don't know how much they charge now because we haven't bought a refill for ages. Our gas bottle seems to last a long time but once we our on a site we normally have electric hook up so it is only used for cooking and getting the fridge cold before we leave home.
